   "character comparisons being case insensitive"? It is a problem in your
locale, not in the comparison code (I hope). There is no such thing as
"case-insensitive strcoll", and I just used strcoll in varlena.c.
   The same problem popped up many times among linux users. Just install
correct locale - and all will run well. There are test programs in
src/test/locale, look carefully. If you can - supply test data for your
locale.

(It looks like my messages to pgsql-*(at)postgresql(dot)org are usually dropped to
floor. If anyone see it - please confirm, send to: phd2(at)earthling(dot)net(dot) I
have no problems receiving mail from these lists, neither sending to many
other lists I am on).

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
